Fairy Tail AMV- Terror Time Again

Rather than the rest of AMV music videos on this song, by nitwitted YouTube subscribers, this one by a lucky YouTube subscriber shows the perfect AMV music video. 

On Halloween music, this song from Skycycle, made me interested in this. I haven’t heard this song since my childhood days on that cartoon TV channel Teletoon. 

And the way “Fairy Tail” can face the horror, especially close to Halloween, you’ll enjoy this every year close to October 31st. Or perhaps on Halloween night.

Karin: Chibi Vampire (anime TV series)


Like “Vampire Knight” and “Ouran High School Host Club”, based on a manga book series, this can be another anime TV series to watch over Halloween. And this has better vampires than the ones in “Hotel Transylvania”.

A family of vampires moved to Tokyo, Japan as their lives are different. They love having blood, but one of the vampire family members is different. She doesn’t suck blood from humans. She gives blood to humans. But when her body overheats, she has a nosebleed so huge, you’ll be surprised.

Her name is Karin Maaka. And she does like being out at daytime. But can be embarrassed for she might reveal herself on what she really is. And what accidents and mistakes she can cause. Especially in high school. Although I feel sorry for her, but I’m glad that as a kind un-vampire, she did good deeds throughout this anime TV show. To her family and friends, and how two boys were fighting over her. One of them was a vampire hunter.

And I don’t think she’s really embarrassing at all as a different vampire. She’s kind, beautiful, and reminds me of Yuki from ‘Vampire Knight’.

So for a success and to watch this over Halloween in October, 10/10 stars. And Karin Maaka, you’re not an embarrassment at all. You’re a success.

Silver Bullet (1985)

Based on the horror novel by Stephen King, Gary Busey, Lawrence Tierney and Everett McGill were in this werewolf tale that turns out to be a success. 

While “Stand By Me”, “The Shining”, “The Shawshank Redemption”, “The Dead Zone” and “Misery”, were a success and made movie history a bit, so did this here. The rest such as “Carrie”, I gave them a quadruple ‘F’ minus. 

In the spring of 1976, in a small town in Maine, a reverend only becomes a werewolf when the moon is full. Therefore, he killed almost 10 people in a few nights. However, a handicapped boy (like Rob Kovic) discovered everything. His sister too. And by relying on their uncle, to a wise craftsman, they used two silver necklaces to be melted down, into only one silver bullet. 


Silver bullets only kill werewolves. Regular bullets is not enough. But in “Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of The Were-Rabbit”, only a 24 carat gold bullet can kill the massive rabbit. But it takes a full magazine to kill lots of werewolves. Cause you may need not just rifles, but the 30 caliber machine gun, the 50 caliber machine gun, the M1 carbine, the M1 Garand, the M60 machine gun, and the Vickers, all loaded with silver bullets. Lots of silver bullets. To get into hunting werewolves. 



9/10 stars is what I give this. Except for a few words that they spoke of in the beginning when it’s daylight. In fact, this was four years after “The Howling” was made.

Chobits (anime TV series from CLAMP)

Here are some things you need to know, when you’re 15 or a few years of age.

1. When you are living own your own, you’re responsible for yourself on living in a new home. Let’s say an apartment for example. Therefore, you need to know on paying the rent, the electric bill, phone bill, water, heat, groceries, laundry, and that sort of stuff. And to keep going with your life, you need work. A pay job you’re interested in. Depending on how the government can be. And jobs also.

2. Computer androids haven’t been invented yet. But in a matter of years, they will be. A sign of artificial intelligence, to how robots as computers can be manufactured. Just as long as they don’t malfunction too much. Or what you do to them.

And…

3. With those two together, you’re responsible on computer androids and your life. To the age of a new era.

Which was why this happened that became a success. Based on the manga books by CLAMP that did “Cardcaptors”, they did this that you should know. When you’re on your own, and when you are dealing with a computer android.

A rowdy country boy, didn’t get himself accepted into college. And do get more education, he had no choice but to head for a special school in Tokyo, Japan. And at the age of a new era, android computers known as ‘persocom’s‘ were new. Android computers.


He found one abandoned on trash bags. He reactivated it, but the problem was, as a she, this computer android was suffering from amnesia. She had no recollection of who she is, or who made her.

It took a long time to make her know things, but was able to work as a baker girl in Tokyo. Pretty neat really.

Along with him to sort things in life are a neighbor friend, a girl who works with him at his job, a teacher also, the manager of the apartment homes, and a computer genius. He also owns four android computers as his maids.

It maybe annoying on a tiny girl ‘persocom’ who does these excersises, and how that rowdy country boy loves to become a pervert, but we do have to be aware of artificial intelligence. Cause since I saw that movie, “A.I.- Artificial Intellegence”, some android computers can really admire you for life.

In that movie, “A.I.- Artificial Intellegence”, some robots were programmed to love. Believe me, but you do not want those robotic androids. 

In “Chobits”, they are much better. And after a successful conclusion, I give this almost 10/10 stars. Straight ‘A’ is alright with me. The annoying part was the little computer android being loud with these excersises. 


But this one here, serious and how she tells the truth, she reminds me of another anime character I know of…

Grape-kun (1996-2017)


This Humboldt penguin may have been like how Hachikō the dog was, but this one was much different. And better. 
Grape-kun the penguin was born on April 16th, 1996 in the Hamura Zoo, in Hamura, Tokyo, Japan. They call him ‘Grape kun’ because of that purple tag that he had on his left arm. 


He lived throughout the rest of his life in the Tobu Zoo. But when zookeepers started posting up cutouts of anime characters from “Kemono Friends”, he loved one for it was in his habitat. It was a anime penguin girl. Grape-kun would stare at that cutout for hours, going as far as trying to reach the cutout that was placed on a tall rock. 

Grape-kun’s devotion to the cutout earned him fame and a global fanbase on the internet. He was an Internet star. 

On Thursday, October 12th, 2017, just before Friday the 13th, Grape kun died when he was 21 years of age. He was old, but he really loved that anime penguin girl cutout. 

After his death, many fans gave him flowers and other gifts for his passing. A temporary message board also at his funeral. It maybe a tragic day for fans who loved Grape kun very much, but this happens to be the very first penguin to be an anime fan. 

R.I.P. for an anime fan who happens to be a penguin. 

The Mummy (2017)

From 1932 to 2008, most of the mummy movies have had males as the mummified monsters from Egypt. Jet Li too in “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor” as the last one. 

But never in the history of monster movies, that a female would ever portray as a mummy. Which was why this came. So rather than those shitty cartoons on how mummies are, she became more serious than how Arnold Vosloo did in the 1999 version and that 2001 sequel. 

In this 2017 version, Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe faced the horror of a mummified demon. From the sands of Egypt, to the streets of London, England, she was resurrected to unleash hell on Earth.

However after a sacrifice and rituals, this tells the morale of this movie. While a character is monster, he/she has to be aware of what one might cause on. Havoc, murder, or destruction. That was how Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde, the Invisible Man, the Mummy, Frankenstein’s monster, the Wolf Man, Dracula, Bride of Frankenstein, the Phantom of the Opera, the Hunchback of Notre Dame and the Creature from the Black Lagoon were in from 1930’s to the 1950’s. Together, they were Universal Monsters. From Universal Studios, they were the original monsters that made movie history. 

And here, shows the first step of a reboot to a cinematic universe called the ‘Dark Universe’. Finally, for a successful movie that Tom Cruise can learn a lesson on, 9/10 stars. Except for some parts that were shitty in this movie. 

Rotten Tomatoes did say that this movie didn’t turn out to be good. But by watching this over Halloween and learning about its secrets, this really turns out to understand very well, thanks to Universal Studios. 

The Howling (1981)


This you can watch around Halloween for sure. They showed this on TV channel AMC a few times, but not a lot. They just need to show this, every late October when the time comes.

Based on a novel by Gary Brandner, this can show you the howling, horror, and carnage of werewolves.

Far up north of Los Angeles, USA, a colony of werewolves lived deep the forest. However, one of the werewolves escaped and broke a law of their order. He got the attention of four news reporters to bring them. The first two were killed, while the other two escaped.


Before the fourth person left, he grabbed a whole pack of silver bullets. Cause that is how werewolves get killed. Not regular bullets, cause that isn’t enough.

Patrick Macnee, Slim Pickins, John Carradine, Elisabeth Brooks, Christopher Stone and a few more were the werewolves.

The real heroes really were Dick Miller, Dennis Dugan, and Kevin McCarthy since he was the original movie version, and the remake movie version of “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”.

All this came to the shockingly surprise to the end. An anchorwoman, portrayed by Dee Wallace, after getting bitten by one of the werewolves, became a werewolf on live TV and was shot on screen. Many viewers saw everything, and couldn’t believe their own very eyes.

For a pass, 8/10 stars. Except for some goddamn shitty cartoons that Dugan was watching while he was researching on werewolves. Fuck that shit on that part when you see this movie. 

Note: This horror movie blog post is dedicated to the loving memory of my Auntie Barbera Houle and her friend Paul, as they together, love horror flicks. Especially around Halloween. 

Psycho (1998 remake)

You know that classic 1960 horror flick. From director Alfred Hitchcock. A woman on the run, stealing $40,000.00 in cash. Until she gets murdered at Bates Motel. By a murderous woman, who raised her son with cruelty.

Vince Vaughn was Norman Bates in which he was very clever, than how Anthony Perkins did in the 1960 version. Years before Freddie Highmore in “Bates Motel”. And that actress who played Marion Crane, she deserved to face the horror of Hitchcock in this remake. Cause for some bullshitty movies she was in before this.

Along with Vince Vaughn, are Julianne Moore as Lila Crane, William H. Macy as Milton Arbogast, Viggo Mortensen as Sam Loomis, James Remar as the highway patrol police officer, Philip Baker Hall as the local sheriff, Robert Forester as the psychiatrist, Anne Haney as the sheriff’s wife, and Rose Marie….as Norma Louise Bates!!

In fact, here is the difference.


This is the dead body of Norma Louise Bates in the 1998 remake.


And this is the dead body of Norma Louise Bates in the 1960 original movie. A rotting piece of shit and she’s the creepiest rather than the remake version.


I know right?

Who’s balls did they ever do it in the 1960 classic? I can’t tell you, but it goes to someone that rhymes with ‘Bitch-cock’. And I may sound like Deadpool when I say this, but let me tell you. He was surely the most chubbiest director on Earth. But wise also. Until it came to the time when Mel Brooks did a parody spoof of his movies. “High Anxiety”.

So anyway, for this remake, 8/10 stars. And okay to watch this over Halloween. This or if you prefer the 1960 original classic.

And I know someone who does remind me of Norma Louise Bates from the original movie. The way she can’t handle herself when she takes things too far.

HER!!

Nancy A. Bates!! A clumsy old crackpot!! (Or C.O.C. for short)

And here are these reactions on her…


“OH MY GOD!!”


“YOU BITCH!!”

(Ripley bangs her head hard)

(Nancy A. Bates screams and dies from her wounds)

Bolaji Badejo (1953-1992)


This was the stunt actor who portrayed as the Alien in the 1979 movie, directed by Ridley Scott. His name was Bolaji Badejo. 

Born on August 23rd, 1953, in Lagos, Nigeria, he started out as a young boy who spent his early days in Nigeria. By the time he came to America around his 20 years of age, he was a bartender somewhere in Los Angeles. 

As a Nigerian visual artist, he wanted to do something good. In what he might do next. Until at 26 years of age one day, he ran into director Ridley Scott and artist H.R. Giger. They were working on a masterpiece of horror that Bolaji volunteered on. So on that very day, he got the job as an alien. 



While filming the movie “Alien”, it took about a long time to design to the costume for Bolaji Badejo to fit in. H.R. Giger thought he looked very good as an alien. And by the time it came to the deaths of Brett, Dallas, Parker and Lambert, he shocked the audience for how he really did. With those twin jaws, serveral dozen teeth, a blade tip tail, and an armoured exoskeleton, he really did it. Especially when Warrent Officer Ellen Ripley shot him right out the airlock doors with a harpoon gun. 

After that, he returned to Nigeria where he spent the rest of his life at his own home. Until by December 22nd, 1992, he died of sickle cell anaemia. He was 39 years of age. 

From what he did to mentioning him in three horror documentaries, he was still the best stunt performer. And after H.R. Giger died years later, I’m sure he and Giger are still glad for what they did. On alien organisms. 

Top 10 Movie Snipers

For a job that needs to be more done, you call in the experts. Armed with sniper rifles, similar to how Tom Berenger did in the “Sniper” movies, they are better than how Chris Kyle was. Before that movie directed by Clint Eastwood. 

And here are the top 10 snipers in movies….


10. Brent (Beneath the Planet of the Apes). Portrayed by James Franciscus, he was better as a sniper man rather than how Charlton Heston did in the first movie. As they together, marooned on a distant planet, were facing one thing that they feared on. Talking apes. From the surface of the planet, to going beneath the planet of the apes, they together along with Nova, went into a doomsday showdown. Just when gorilla soldiers invaded the underground city of the human mutants. Armed with the M1 Carbine rifle, he shot several gorilla troops including General Ursus. Dr. Zaius however, met his fate when the bomb was triggered. That made him scream a lot as hard as he can. Just when he was killed in the blast. 


9. Scorpio (Dirty Harry). Portrayed by Andrew Robinson, this is what made him and Clint Eastwood  very famous, thanks to Warner Bros. A psychopathic sniper, no matter where he can be, from building to building, was killing a lot of girls. At more than 800ft away. Especially when he killed that girly swimmer in the opening sequence. Armed with the 7.7mm Arisaka Type 2 Paratrooper Takedown rifle, with a silencer and a long scope, he wouldn’t stop his silent but deadly massacre until the mayor pays him $100,000. That was when Dirty Harry began to hunt him down until it came to the very climax. 


8. Pvt. Gutkowski (Kelly’s Heroes). Portrayed by Richard Davalos, armed with the Mosin Nagant M91/30 sniper rifle, he had the eagle eyes while going on a quest behind enemy lines. By joining Pvt. Kelly and his band of brothers, his award would be that gold they find. With better sniper skills than how one did in the movie, “The Dirty Dozen”, he makes himself sure to take on every Nazi troop before they get to their local prize. At 350 ft of distance. But I’m sure he got on what he needed thanks to his sniper skills.  


7. Isabelle (Predators). Portrayed by Alice Barga, she was one of the mercenaries taken from Earth by the Predators, and became marooned on a distant planet in deep space. With those Predators in the hunt, and no escape, she had to choice but to join Royce and the others in order to get off that Predator planet. Armed with the Blaser R93 LRS2 Rifle, she shoots very far at 300ft to 400ft. Especially while fighting on those Predator hounds. The Breserker Predator too in the very climax. And to tell you the truth, she beats the hell out of Jason Bourne (portrayed by Matt Damon) as an expert sniper. 


6. Lee Harvey Oswald (Killing Kennedy). Portrayed by Will Rothhaar, he was the best actor to play as that former US Marine. In which he shot U.S. President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. And with that very old Italian bolt action rifle, the Carcano M91/38, he was shooting at Kennedy at 250ft at that moving target. From the book depository building. He off 3 rounds in only 6 seconds, and scored himself two hits, including that bloody headshot. That shook the USA when it came on that day of horror. And after he was shot by Jack Ruby, Lyndon B. Johnson became the next president of the USA. 


5. Jim Terrier (The Gunman). Portrayed by Sean Penn, this former US special forces soldier had been in the run a lot. Cause after assasinating an Congo minister of mining, he’d be in massive trouble since Edward Snowden was the first by the CIA. Armed with the PGM Hecate II rifle, he shoots close to being loud. From distance at 750 yards, he takes his kills pretty bloody. But really good. Especially to those who work for the Pentagon. He in fact, took on 43 men who work for the CIA. And I’m sure he learned a valuable lesson at the very end. 


4. Cpl. Anthony Swofford (Jarhead). Portrayed by Jake Gyllenhaal, long ago as a young actor, he faced on how he is a US Marine during the Gulf War. From training than how Chris Kyle did, he became not just a sniper, but most of all…a jarhead. Armed with the Remington M40A1 sniper rifle, with his fellow partner guide, they were lead to only one sniper mission. Asassinating two commanders at an almost deserted airport. Right on the control tower. I can’t tell you for what happened, but he really did it. Just before an air strike was called in. Cause well, that would be telling, wouldn’t it? 


3. Charles Whitman (The Deadly Tower). Portrayed by Kurt Russell, armed with an M1 Carbine rifle, the Paratrooper Takedown Rifle, and more of his arsenal, he went into his own war zone as this former US Marine. At 400 yards of distance, from the tower of the University of Texas, in Austin, Texas, USA, he killed 14 people and wounded 31 more. A pregnant lady too with her unborn son. He was known as ‘The Texas Sniper’ on that day of August 1st, 1966. In fact, not only he did his killing spree, but was clever enough to give minimal damage on a biplane. Almost like how ‘King Kong’ was, but with one sniper and one biplane, he had his own showdown on that part. Before he met his fate at the climax. 


2. The Vietnamese Sniper (Full Metal Jacket). Portrayed by actress Ngoc Le, and hired by Stanley Kubrick, she was the Vietnamese sniper in that famous Vietnam War movie. By surviving the Battle of Hué City, and after losing her parents, she was the one who shot Cpl. Eightball, Doc Jay, and Sgt. Cowboy. In the ruins of Hué City, she was hiding in the shadows until by dusk, she was revealed. Armed with the SA Vz.58, with no scope, and her eagle eye, she almost killed Sgt. Joker when PFC. Rafterman shot her. Although she does remind me of Sheeta, from “Castle in the Sky” with those hair braids. Except for how large her nostrils are. But once you see for how furious she can be, she will definitely make you go, “Eat lead motherfucker!”. 


1. Vassili Zaitsev (Enemy at the Gates). Portrayed by Jude Law, he became the 1# sharpshooter of all time. As a soldier of the Soviet Union, he saved Stalingrad during the Second World War. From killing Nazi’s to a sniper showdown in the ruins of Stalingrad, he didn’t stop until he got the German sniper that he was being followed by. Armed with the Mosin Nagant M91/30 sniper rifle, he was better with it. Especially with that scope, and special camoflouge that he wore. And when it comes to being outnumbered, he and his partner do some noise cover. So when an explosion goes off, he shoots a Nazi right in the head before another one is next. Hiding the sound of his rifle, he killed almost 250 Germans in the Battle of Stalingrad. One by one. The German sniper too. Just when he met his fate. 

Do you agree with my list? Which are your top 10# movie snipers?
